I can accurately say I will spend no time at all putting any new equipment on my tanks.

Before or after figuring out what equipment is useless till i end up fitting the same stuff on all tanks as this is where you will end up again anyways.

I voted for eternity.

Why? Simply because I won't bother to check every single tank I got equipped at day one. The first time I will play one of them, I will check the equipment and, if I have a better setup in mind and the money to make it, will update the tank. But this can be quite a long process and can potentially not end before the games eventually close... :)

As it stands, the golden triangle is, and will remain to be, Rammer + Optics + Stabs for conventional (meta) tanks. Therefore, a minimal amount of time will be needed to adjust to it at first.

 

The new equipment in fact is only really going to make both (wheeled) light tanks and auto(re)loaders more powerful. This because such vehicles either can not mount the golden triangle, or can actually give up some of the overall versatility and setup for more specialised roles.

 

There are some occasions where other specialised equipment may suit individual tanks, or permit some funky setups useful exclusively during Clan Wars and Advances. Otherwise, all the specialised equipment that improve some specific parameters will only useful in specific situations during battles, whereas the golden triangle is useful at all times.

or giving my french M4 better reverse speed so its actually useable in a peek-fight - 12kmh is just useless at current for that :sceptic:

Apart from a couple of favourite tanks I will just switch them as and when I play them and even then only if I can be bothered, and I will at least wait until the new equipment is half price.

 

So between a few minutes and eternity.

Do you mean the Revalorise?

12 kmh reverse for a Sherman is mega generous IMHO.

Eight months on, I am still learning how to cope with just 4 kmh reverse on Shermans in War Thunder.

I won't bother changing all of them, I'll just change my favourite tanks (the ones i play the most) and then I'll change the rest when I'll have the feel to play with them. :D

If I spent 1 minute in every tank I have, that would take about 7 hours.

 

I have better things to do.

Let's see, you'll spend atleast a minute waiting for the loading times when changing equipment, and let's say 2 minutes to decide what a tank could use. So with only 3 minutes per tank it would take me a better part of a day.

 

But wait, we have only 30 demounting kits so you gotta factor in playing the game if you don't want to spend gold....

 

Voted eternity...

I suspect I will do them as I play them to figure out what styles works best for what tank type etc in more detail if there are more changes. But If I sat down and did every single one instantly? I suspect I would be sitting a bit. As I have 275 to check upon.

It depends on how many new tanks I will acquire before the update hits.

Furthermore, I dislike that there is no option to vote "soup".
